Isildur1 Loses $1.5 Million Wednesday To Halve Profits For 2010

After a bumper few days which saw him notch up a $2 million profit at Full Tilt’s cash tables this month, Isildur1 ran into a bit of resistance Wednesday and dropped $1.533 million of his bankroll over a 10,000 hand session.
First up to take on the mystery Swede was Tom “durrrr” Dwan, who had an axe to grind with Isildur1 having had his bankroll sent into a tail spin after losing millions of dollars to him in 2009.
This time Dwan managed to exact a measure of revenge against his erstwhile opponent and after posting a 921 hand session at $300/$600 PLO (6 tables), Dwan finished the exchange $964,000 in profit.
In the past, Isildur1’s temperament has been called into question, as well as his tendency to tilt rather than cut his losses on days things aren’t going his way.
During this exchange, even Dwan would admit he was running well above expectation which seemed to put Isildur1 on tilt, such that he ended getting stacked during the biggest pot of the night of $303,000, although he was a 4-1 underdog before the river and could have avoided the situation.
After dropping almost $1 million to Dwan, Isildur1 then wanted to move on up and play $500/$1000, but Dwan was happy with his win and left.
The concept of a stop-loss limit doesn’t seem to be in Isildur1’s poker vocabulary, who then sat down opposite Justin “Zeejustin” Bonomo, and managed to recover about $400,000 of his day’s losses.
Isildur1 then continued his prowl of the Full Tilt high stakes cash tables and lined up his next opponent Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, who has had a relatively quiet time on the site this year. That was all about to change for the American poker pro who played a lengthy session of $300/$600 and then $500/$1000 PLO against the Swede, and relieved him of a whopping $1.66 million of his bankroll.
All told, by the time Isildur1 had clocked off for the night he had halved his $3 million profit for 2010 to around $1.5 million, but left behind an army of rail birds looking forward to more high stakes action from the super aggressive ‘Lord Of The Rings’.
